We would like to thank all of artists who entered our Lobo Art Contest. We are amazed at the talent and creativity portrayed in each piece of art we received. We received sixty-one works of art that were submitted by forty artists. All the entries have been posted in a photo album on our Facebook page. Please take some time to view this album.
With so many beautiful and inspiring works, it was difficult for our judges to choose their “favorites”. To determine the top ranked art we used a combination of judges scores and Facebook likes to choose the top seven pieces – one winner and six runner-ups. One of our judges, Katie Preston, had this message to share with the contestants.
“As an artist, I have entered my work into contests before. This is my first time being in the judge position and it is hard to ‘judge’ art when I believe that each piece was special and worthy. Thank you everyone for your efforts and I hope you all continue to pursue your artistic endeavors.”
-Katie Preston, Activist and Textile Artist
